The Joys of Walking!

Postby Dave » 10 Jan 2018 15:58

Today's walk was a similar distance to yesterday's, but I headed west along the coast instead of east.

There are no seaside towns in that direction, just flat reclaimed marshland and mudflats that are a haven for birds. I came across a few boats that looked abandoned (or at least the worse for wear), and I think this one made a nice picture. :D

At Faversham, I headed inland and did a loop back along country lanes and across farmland. Passing through a large fruit farm I noticed strawberries - both green and red. I didn't know they fruited in January. Now I can resurrect 'Crop of the Day'. ;)

Image

And here's another crop, which I've only recently discovered to be turnips. Turnips seem to cover half the arable land in Kent at the moment.

Image

There are many lovely villages in this area. This is Hernhill, with a pub (white building, centre) called... yes, The Red Lion. I still haven't found out why half the pubs in Kent share the same name!
